Montreal Closing Off Avenue Mont-Royal For Huge Sidewalk Sale

If I've said it once, I've said it a thousand times: Nothing screams summer in Montreal louder than outdoor festivals. And even though Montreal is well-versed in outdoor festivals, you can never have enough, TBH.

Thankfully, Avenue Mont-Royal is here to quench your thirst for super fun outdoor events.

From June 2 to 5, 2016, all of Mont-Royal Avenue is going to be closed off to cars, transforming into a giant pathway of fun, basically.

Of course, this is for their La Foire Commerciale De L'Été event, which is basically the summer's biggest sidewalk sale.

Other than a sidewalk sale - which ends at around 11 PM, btw, so prepare to get your shopping on - La Foire Commerciale De L'Été will also feature artists (doing things like personalized calligraphy and temporary tattoos), DJs, games, and more.
